Subject: Versis Versus
Good set of commercials here, all with female appeal. The first set are crest and gleem toothpaste commercials, one after the other, like they're trying to one up each other. Crest definitely wins that battle. Then it's Prell concentrate AND shampoo vs head and shoulders and some other hair products. Prell wins! Great 60's era feel to these.

Subject: Woeful to the point of embarrassing
Well, I've downloaded, viewed and reviewed hundreds of cigarette commercials, and a few dozen other commercials, but this lot is the most mundane, boring and uninteresting collection of ads I've come across.

Of historical value only. Maybe not even that. If this collection of commercials disappeared I doubt the world would be a poorer place
